Lisa Bates: Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Cape Coral, FL.
My experience with Billy was in one word… FABULOUS!! Even though we needed to see houses on short notice between the Christmas and New Year Holidays, he still took the time to make himself available to us.
His knowledge and expertise in his field was invaluable as we were not able to make a successful offer during our trip. But even after we returned to Chicago, he made it possible for us to keep looking ‘virtually’ by sending us easy to view links to his photos and videos that he had taken of the houses we liked, and those he believed really suited us. There is so much that you can’t see in the online listings! HE found the house we bought, believing that it fit us exactly; though I had my concerns. But he was right!! It was like being there ourselves and he didn’t miss a thing- from the lovely arches to the filthy baseboards, we saw it all in high resolution! In fact, we didn’t even see the house until after being under contract and felt as if we had been there before. We bought a Short Sale property and had heard of such nightmares with them, but Billy had lots of experience in this type of purchase and knew what to look for so we could avoid that kind of nasty situation, telling us about the whole process and making sure we understood exactly how it worked. Who knew there was so much to know?
It was clear that our interests were his, honestly. He used all of his resources to find me the home of my dreams and he made our buying experience a fantastic one.
Thank you Billy! ----- Lisa
Shawn & Lauren Hagan Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Cape Coral, FL.
We worked with Billy for a full year before finding the perfect place. During this time he was courteous, knowledgeable, patient, and funny! We started the home search process looking for a realtor we could trust. In Billy we found more than we could have asked for, and consider him not only our realtor, but our friend!
Gary & Marlena Harlow: Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Fort Myers, FL.
I highly recommend Billy as he's very knowledgeable of the complete process of home purchasing from beginning to end. Me and my wife bought a foreclosure with no mortgage company and not knowing much of the process. He was very informed and honest with getting approval as well as pin pointing where we wanted to purchase our home. He found us some excellent, very reasonably priced homes in prime locations. His brokerage staff helped immensely and Billy was honest and efficient in the entire process

Billy is very up-front and honest. Enjoyed working with him. He set down with us before looking at anything and interviewed us, asking questions on our likes and dislikes. He went over what area(s) we would be most interested in and then pointed out the benefits of each area. He explained the tax structure of the different areas along with what we could expect to pay for insurance. He then compared those with what those expenses would be like on a comparable house in another area. He took extra time wanting to know just what features in a house we wanted. This was very time saving for us and for him which eliminated showing us something that would fit our price range but had no features that we wished to have. In short, Billy spent a lot of extra time BEFORE showing us houses which in turn saved us time and that made our decision easier to make by not being overwhelmed by looking at houses that we had no interest in. Planning on another purchase in Bonita Springs, Florida and know that Billy will not only be the one my wife and I choose, but that he will surely do a great job once again.
Mark & Patty Godfrey: Bought a Townhome in 2012.
As totally against my nature as it was, we purchase our townhouse completely sight unseen. Billy filmed a detailed video showing all of the positive and negative aspects of our future home. That coupled with his friendly, outgoing personality, not to mention his knowledge of the local real estate market, allowed us to make our purchase in this unique manner. What a great decision and buying experience! - Mark and Patty Godfrey
Happy in Our Palace: Bought a home in 2012.
Mr. Comtois went over and above his responsibilities with the seller of the home we purchased. It was a difficult situation as the home was not really in "showable" condition and the seller was being somewhat forced to sell. It all came together okay and we are very happy with our home.
